Story

Not much is known about this particular plant except that it likely came out of Afghanistan/Pakistan during the 80′s when the country was in upheaval, and was likely brought to the USA by American military personnel.  It is thought by many to be the mother plant to the modern Purple lines such as Grape Ape, Granddaddy Purple, Purple Urkle, etc. This cut is also thought to be the same cut as the Pacific Northwest’s “Ultraviolet”.

Aroma

Perfumed grape incense-like smell.

Qualities

Relaxing and semi-narcotic like most Purple strains, it’s clear that this one is 100% Indica.  Good for pain relief, relaxation, anti-anxiety, and sleep aid.

Grow Medium

Purple Indica is a tiny, squat plant that will need additional vegetative growth time to get weight.  It also requires a lot of pruning close to the stem to prevent bud rot.
